Autodesk® Simulation software, part of the Autodesk® solution for Digital Prototyping, provides a range of mechanical simulation tools to help designers, engineers, and analysts make decisions earlier in the engineering design process. With these tools, you can predict the real‐world performance of your product, helping to save the time and money required to build multiple physical prototypes.

Autodesk® Simulation software lets you start with mainstream tools and then expand your toolkit to include more advanced simulation such as mechanical event simulation—without the need to learn new workflows.

With Autodesk® Simulation Mechanical and Autodesk® Simulation Multiphysics software, you can use multi-body dynamics with support for large-scale motion, large deformation, and large strain with body-to-body contact to enhance design decisions. Analyze models subject to dynamic loads and inertial effects involved in motion, drop tests, and impact and then study stress, strain, displacement, shear, and axial forces due to motion. Mechanical event simulation with linear and nonlinear materials automatically calculates loads and time-stepping based on physical data, helping you avoid costly, inaccurate assumptions.

In fact, one of the main advantages of mechanical event simulation is the need to make fewer assumptions. With this type of simulation, there is no need for complicated hand calculations, experiments to determine equivalent loading, or interpretation of results. By reducing the number of assumptions that must be made, the chance for errors is significantly reduced.

The setup of mechanical event simulations is made easier through the use of standard engineering terminology, workflow guidance, and user-friendly tools and wizards—letting you focus on product performance, not advanced numerical or simulation methods.

Support for multi-CAD environments and finite element modeling tools help manufacturers study initial design intent and accurately predict product performance. Autodesk Simulation software supports direct data exchange with most CAD software tools, Autodesk® Moldflow® plastic injection molding simulation tools, and Autodesk® Vault data management software. Autodesk Simulation software allows you to validate and optimize designs before manufacturing—increasing efficiency, minimizing reliance on physical prototypes, reducing costs, and decreasing errors.
